Dilly the Donkey may be little and wonky – and not as young as she used to be – but each day she lovingly carts the children to school. That is until her owner replaces her with a flashy young horse! Is poor Dilly too old and bent to be of any use? Of course not! She’s kind, brave and smart too, so when the new horse catches the eye of two sneaky thieves, it’s up to Dilly to halt their dastardly plan and save the day. Could this be the start of a whole new career?

A joyous and inspiring book written by Elli Woollard and illustrated by Steven Lenton, packed with positive values. A delightful story that puts age and wisdom before beauty, encourages self belief and shows that no matter how old and wonky you may be, you still have value and can still be exceptional!

A third fabulous story from creators of the The Great Gran Plan and Dinosaurs Don’t Draw.
